I forgot to show it expanded, but the 'Games', 'My Apps', and 'My Contacts' use FolderOrganizer lite and Apps Organizer to give a nice dynamic shortcuts folder. (I didn't like the default android folders.)

Live Wallpaper is EarthRot. It's sweet.
Good looking app set up. How do you get Pandora to show as a large icon? I'd like not having to search for it since I use it so much.

But even better than that is the pandora folder it has all your stations that you have preset in there.

Awesome. Much appreciated. I spent an hour trying to find a decent one, and I'm not happy with the BBC widget.

haha nice, again, I honestly think the Penguins Mobile app is one of the most well developed apps I've seen. Granted they have the funding to do so, I'm just very impressed. The minimalistic widget is fantastic, and the app itself has more than I expected.

I tried to install this on my laptop and connect phone so I could post screen shots but get lost in the program. Can somebody post a step by step procedure for dummies like myself lol? I went to the link and downloaded the package for windows, unzipped it, but then I get lost.

Compare that to the previously posted pic
What is the widget you have running that has the letters A M N R S V at the bottom with red-to-green bars and mute icons?

Glenn, this is the easiest way I found to do this:

First and foremost on your phone touch the menu button and go to settings. Select Applications in this list, then select development. Ensure USB Debugging is turned on.

Then:

-Connect your Incredible as a disk drive
-Run HTCSync2.0.25.exe (HTC Sync)
-Unzip the downloaded android-sdk-windows
-Run SDK Setup.exe from the unzipped folder
-Following the setup of HTC Sync Click Start > Run
-Type CMD
-In the Command prompt box it will most likely say C:\Documents and Settings\{your username}\
**Note: Documents and Settings is in XP, if you have
Vista or Windows 7 it will say users**
-If you unzipped it to your desktop type the following:
-cd Desktop (then press enter)
-cd Name of the unzipped folder (then press enter)
-cd Tools
-ddms.bat

This should bring up the view of your device in the Dalvik Debug Monitor

-Click on the device in the list on the top left
-Click Device and then Capture Screenshot

This should then show a preview of what you currently have on your screen.

Can I get more home screens using Helix? I seem to only have three at the moment. If so, how?

Exactly. One thing I do differently, which I think is easier than typing in what's underlined above, is actually navigate to the tools folder of the SDK and open that. In the "address bar" of the tools folder, when you click on it, it'll change to the path you would need to type. Copy and paste into the cmd window after you type in cd -space-

So for mine, it looks like this:

C:\Users\yourname>cd C:\Users\yourname\Desktop\android-sdk_r05-windows\android-sdk-windows\tools

push enter and you'll see:

C:\Users\yourname\Desktop\android-sdk_r05-windows\android-sdk-windows\tools>

type "ddms.bat" and push enter. Give it a second and you'll see the dalvik debug monitor

Copy and paste is definitely easier (please note in the command prompt you cannot use the shortcut keys of CTRL + V to paste, you must right click and select paste)

One note is if you are using XP and it says "Documents and Settings you may have to put quotes around the line so it would read:

cd "C:\Documents and Settings\<yourusername>\Desktop\android-sdk_r05-windows\tools"

anyways, if anyone really needs more instruction just let me know and I can help out.

Lets say you have your 3G on and as soon as you hit the wifi toggle. The wifi icon takes the place of the 3G icon on the status bar at the top of the phone, at least this is how it should work but if you install Helix it doesnt do that any more

another thing i found is that if you have helix installed and you have 3G and wifi off the Wifi toggle wont turn the wifi all the way on you have to go to the wifi setting and as soon as you get there the wifi icon pops up on top and then you can use the wifi.

its too bad cause i like Helix but if its gonna give me problems like this ill have to unistall it

p.s ive been getting these errors with HELIXlauncher not HELIXlauncher 2.

What are you using lgldrgdlr?

Awfully observant there. I just checked and I have wifi on and the icon is there. I turned it off for a minute, turned it back on, and it came up after about 10 seconds. Not sure what happened in that other pic.



Oh, and it's just helixlauncher, not II.

Question Favorites Widget Images

Well since everyone is showing off their UI, I'd figure its a good time to ask, anyone have any issues with your picture say your favorites looks really bad, the quality of the picture is nothing like the actual picture, looks like all they pixels are crunched up and the image looks really distorted and cheap. I have a feeling this issue is due to the way Google syncs your contacts.

I tried deleting my picture from my gmail account, then upload a nice good quality picture (from my phone), when i add this contact to my favorite widget, the image looks clean and smooth...once i do a sync the image looks bad.

Any ideas, or anyone else having this problem??

Well, I really appreciate all the help. I downloaded htcsync and it is in my list of programs. I have the phone set right with usb debugging on and connected as a disk drive. However, htcsync doesn't connect to the phone.

Any ideas???

dont need it as a disk drive. open your cmd line (start, type run then cmd "enter") when its opened, enter in the path to the tools folder and hit enter. after you do the, type adb and see what happens. if you get a bunch of things scrolling past, you're good

That's okay, mine doesn't sync up either, just try to proceed now that you have installed HTC sync. What operating system are you working with?

Default Google Earth

Why can't I find Google Earth listed under the Adroid Marketplace? It doesn't come pre-loaded on the DI does it. Can't find it anywhere? Help!

For what it's worth, I did some considerable testing this afternoon with HelixLauncher 2. It looks pretty sick, but it was force closing A LOT. Not sure if it was a conflict with another app or what, but I switched to Helix 1 and had no issues. Also, thanks for the link to the news widget lgldrgdlr

Its neither on the market nor on your Incredible. You need to install it manually. You can find the APK somewhere in the threads. Just search for it.

Couple questions for you guys.

Is there a way to change a program's standard icon without using something like apps manager?

Also, is there a way to re-skin other widgets?

Yea, I tried Helix2 today and it was closing too much. I think it has issues with some of the widgets. I'll give Helix1 a try, but hopefully they'll fix the issues.


Not sure what the difference is between the two.

Funny enough Vista is what I used to do this. What happens when you open the command prompt, go to the extracted Tools folder and attempt to run ddms.bat?

Where did you get the Google Voice widget/shortcut? Just bought my invite, and can't seem to figure out where to get it.

I have the same thing. It's just the program shortcut. Its not a widget. You just add-->program--> find google voice and select it.

Edit: I forgot that there is also a pseudo-widget (actually a shortcut) for google voice that toggles whether to make calls with google voice or not. Its found by using add --> shortcut -->google voice

It's not a widget. Just drag the VOICE from Drawer to Home Screen.

I guess that's my problem --- I can't find the shortcut to google voice. Did I set it up wrong? I signed up from my PC, and followed the instructions. Everything seems to work well, but other than the fact that it works, I can't find anything that references google voice on my phone!

I edited my reply to show that there is both a shorcut and a program shorcut. Two different things. The shortcut allows you to toggle whether google voice is used for calls or not. The program shortcut just brings you to google voice.

Maybe you can find one or the other?

PS: How did you get credit for my post and me credit for yours lol

LOL. I don't know how I did that!
When I go into my programs, there's nothing that shows that I have google voice. Maybe it's because I only did the voicemail, and did not get a google voice number?

ok i think i fixed the quote mixup haha. There was an extra quote tag!

I'm not sure whats going on. I would first try rebooting if you havent done that since installing goolge voice. Otherwise try uninstalling and reintalling. This happened once for me with not finding a widget that I had just installed but it ended up showing up after about 5 minutes without me having to do anything.
